Daithi, Mary Keanes Introduction (Official Video)

A woman is interviewed about life in County Clare when she was young. She speaks so openly of love and in such heartfelt tones that it’s put to music.
Here is the music of Daithi, and the official video which is introduced as follows:

Dotted along the coast of Ireland, there are lookout posts built during WWII as a means for Irish soldiers to keep an eye on the sea. Unintentionally, they have made a kind of treasure hunt for amazing views of the coastline, most of which are so hidden that very few people know they exist.
While shooting, we had a lot of fun searching for these lookout posts, some of which have been completely destroyed by huge storms.

This video was filmed at the lookout posts on the Galway and Mayo coastline. The house at the start is my Grandmothers house in Clare, who is also speaking at the start of the track.

The video is directed, edited and shot by the amazing Conal Thomson.
Hope you enjoy!
